Abstract

original image

Leaf-like V2O5 nanosheets are fabricated by a facile green approach. Used as cathode material for lithium-ion batteries, this nano-structured material exhibits superior performance, i.e., high rate capability and good capacity retention upon cycling. Thus, the leaf-like V2O5 Nanosheets are promising as a cathode material for high power lithium batteries.
